Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Star power can cover up a multitude of shortcomings in a film. Turns out stupidity isn't one of them.
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Friday, December 10, 2010
Rotten: So deficient in the genre's essentials - such as witty dialogue, intriguing characters and surprising yet credible plot turns - that you're embarrassed for everyone involved.
- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Friday, December 10, 2010
Fresh: The Tourist merely asks you to sit back and enjoy the ride, and then makes that task a breeze.

"The Tourist" is a very poor movie. Of course, it represents Hollywood at it's worst. The movie was never intended to have any value. It's sole purpose was to cash in on the star power of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. There is no way that this script would have been brought to life without those names attached. "The Tourist" is as lazy as film-making gets. It's slow, uninspired, predictable, and downright annoying. Speaking of the attached star power, this is just a phoned in performance by Depp and Jolie. They play the same roles that they always do. Brace yourself for this one, Angelina Jolie is engaging in espionage! But isn't Jolie a spy in every one of her movies? Strangely enough, with as much practice as she gets in these roles, she never turns in a believable performance. When Johnny Depp isn't trying, he normally portrays a quirky character that ends up in-over-his-head, and that's exactly what you get here. It's astonishing that nobody figured out that thrusting Depp and Jolie into their comfort zones would result in zero chemistry. Then again, you have to remind yourself that nobody making the movie cared if it was entertaining. Then it all makes sense. "The Tourist" is generic garbage, that I strongly urge you to avoid. If you're a die-hard fan of Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie, you have to start watching better movies.

Critics have nothing on The Tourist because it seemed to fly right by their heads that at it's core, The Tourist is a fluff of ROMEDY and should be judged as such. The espionage premise plays a huge backseat role in what is one of the most well acted/scripted romantic comedies I've seen in awhile. The chemistry between Depp's initial awkward persona and Jolie's astute super-spy makes for a really charming watch and simply resonates as they stumble into the oddity that is love. I mean, let's look at other recent films that tackled this particular genre. There's Cruise's glossy, over-the-top cliche-filled "Knight & Day" and Kutcher's "Killers" which was literally the same product but with even worse execution. If you can honestly make that comparison and say The Tourist wasn't better then you either have an amateur sense of humor or an unhealthy obsession with explosions/action. It's cute, romantic, charming and at the same time somewhat elegant in that it plays with very classical spy-themes and archetypes.

Another disappointing movie, seems to be the year for it i guess! You couldnt get any better than two of the finest hollywood actors to come together in one movie with a superb supporting cast and then the movie to still be the rubbish! great location and scenery but i went to watch a romantic thriller and that isnt what i got. Not worth the effort of watchin!
